Publisher's Summary

The ultimate secret. The ultimate agent. Nathaniel Cade returns.

For 140 years, Nathaniel Cade has been the President's Vampire, sworn to protect and serve his country. Cade's existence is the most closely guarded of White House secrets: a superhuman covert agent who is the last line of defense against nightmare scenarios that ordinary citizens only dream of. When a new outbreak of an ancient evil-one that he has seen before- comes to light, Cade and his human handler, Zach Barrows, must track down its source. To "protect and serve" often means settling old scores and confronting new betrayals . . . as only a centuries-old predator can.

    "Excellent series - keep reading"

    I don't imagine you're reading this unless you've read the first installment of the series, 'Blood Oath'. If I'm being honest, this second book in the series is a shade less potent than the first installment. Still pretty darn good though - I definitely recommend reading / listening. I'm maintaining the five star rating because, at the time I'm writing this, I've read the third book, which was awesome. Overall, this series holds five stars. If you're a fan of 'Blood Oath' but think this is a weaker tea, keep drinking, you'll be happy you did.

    I love to read, but I am time-limited. Audible allows me to keep up with all my favorite authors while on the hiking trail. Thanks, Audible!

    "Moxie and mad skills!"

    Nathaniel Cade, the ultimate defender of the world, is back with his plucky but sexually deprived handler, Zach. In The President???s Vampire, Cade uses his super strength and senses to protect people of the world against an old but newly, genetically altered foe. In this installment, we learn more about Cade???s skills, and Zach displays toughness in the face of adversity. I had no idea he was capable of such moxie. Finally, Tanya is still present, and her presence is still inexplicable. This book is interesting but is not as good as Blood Oath. Bronson Pinchot, again, does a wonderful job bringing characters to life.

    "Loved it!"

    This is a vampire series (3 books). You don???t have a doe-eyed female saying bite my neck or a Clan of vampires trying to integrate into society or take over the vamp world. What you do have is a reluctant vampire; he made one mistake and has to attone for it for the rest of eternality
    Cane is bounded by a pledged but also believes in fighting for the values of Unites States of America. Cane goes out (with his sidekick Zach) to fight the monsters so you and I can sleep monster free. As a matter of fact, he is sooo good we don???t even know there are monsters. So we have got espionage, vamps, politics, the values of ???Red, White and Blue??? (our flag) and a vampire who does not understand 21st century colloquialisms.

    "What's not to like?"

    This is a great series. Like-able characters, good premise. Imagine HellBoy with a vampire instead of a devil, and you've got the idea of this book. Well narrated.

    "My first review, that good. Start with Blood Oath."
    What did you love best about The President's Vampire?

    The story is awesome. I stayed up all night listening to this nonstop. Great take on an old subject.


    What does Bronson Pinchot bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    Bronson is my new favorite narrator, sorry Marc Vietor. Bronson bring a large group of voices and makes each character come to life. I was equally impressed with the narrator as I was with the story.


    Any additional comments?

    Start with Blood Oath!

    "Like "Blood Oath"? You'll like this one, too."

    Cade and Zach are back with more adventure and carnage. Zach has accepted his position with resignation and some humor, while Cade is trying to be patient with Zach's inexperience. The two are developing a rapport that is kinda cute in a way. I hope Christopher Farnsworth is able to come out with another Cade & Zach book soon.

    All mysteries all the time, that's what I read. I joined Audible when I started having a long commute. Now I listen everywhere!

    "Farnsworth & Pinchot--a match made in ... heaven?"

    Excellent political thriller, love that Cade. And Bronson Pinchot... who knew? I'm adding him to my short list of most-listenable readers. Amazing!

    "When it's good-it's really good!"

    I think I have been with Audible since its inception (or a really long time) and because of that, I may be a bit too critical, at times.
    Not this time!
    This series has it all...great story line, light touches of humor, a marvelous vampire with a terrific sidekick who happens to be the vampire's unlikely handler, awesome writing that flows like a stream going over rapids, and best of all it is read by my most favorite narrator who (and I have no idea how the man does it) makes each character totally and completely unique.
    I'm going back to listen to it again, just to see what parts I may have missed.
    I hope you like it as well as I did. Best wishes!

    Any additional comments?

    Not a bad follow-up but nothing memorable in this 2nd book of the series. I enjoy the writing style but the ideas are a little uninspired for such an original take on the genre. I will be continuing on to the next installment of this series.
